‘Jurassic World’ set to become fastest film to gross $1 billion

June 23, 2015

“Jurassic World” is set to become the fastest film to gross $1 billion in box office receipts worldwide, after last week’s record-breaking opening.


The movie, which stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, is expected to hit the milestone just 13 days after its release, the studio said.

The previous record was set by Universal’s “Furious 7” car-filled action film, which topped $1 billion globally in 17 days after its April release this year.

Over the weekend, “Jurassic World” scored the highest-grossing second week at the domestic box office with $106.6 million, topping $400 million in North America in 10 days.
